Nightly Routine

By January 27th, 20214 Comments

I was chatting with a reader on GMAIL yesterday, and she asked me how I preserve my Twist-n-Curl style at night. Specifically, she wanted to know if I re-twist, and how I moisturize.

At night, I apply a teeny bit of Shea Butter to my ends for extra hold and moisture. I never, ever re-twist.

I found a miracle bonnet at Sally’s about 7 months ago. I couldn’t find the exact image online, but here’s a similar one:,default,pd.html

It pretty much looks the same…same woman on the front, only the lining of the cap is satin, and the color is beige. It is very sturdy, and most certainly looks absurd, but it gets the job done. Unlike the flimsier black ones from the ‘other side’ of Sally’s, it really holds my Twist-n-Curl in place. I simply pull my hair into a low pony with one hand, and guide the cap on with the other. In the morning, I wake up, remove the cap, fluff, and GO!

Later Gators,

P.S. I’m on day 3 hair, and it still looks fab. I think it’s the bentonite clay.

    Can I ask the reasoning behind not retwisting? Is it to prevent breakage or product buildup?

    Only if you’d have written this post yesterday. Let me tell you, I made the mistake of retwisting my hair and I woke up to it looking like a HOT MESS! I got to work 45 minutes late because I was at home trying to get my hair (which just flat and dead) to look half way decent.
    What I learned is that dry twist are not for me. Instead of the twist n’curl-the fingerstyle with perm rollers on the ends work for me and to get the second day hair-definitely don’t twist it-just put on my silk scarf and fluff in the morning.
    I wish I had taken a picture this morning. I looked worst than the before chick on the Dr. Miracle commercial LOL LOL
